The La Pavoni professional espresso maker is a a combination of style, quality and reliability. The machine is largely constructed of chrome plated brass and is built to last. The base of the espresso machine is made of steel and is triple chrome plated on the outside. The inside of the base has has a light polish to prevent problems due to moisture.The large boiler ensures that lime scale deposits have minimal effect, meaning minimum maintenance is needed.

By lifting the lever, a piston inside the group is raised, allowing water under pressure to infuse the coffee in the filter holder. The lever is then lowered, causing the piston to force the water through the coffee into the cup. The user therefore can vary the speed at which the water passes through the coffee, ensuring this latter is made exactly according to his own requirements. The machine is fitted with a steam jet interchangeable with the Automatic Cappuccino maker, for the preparation of cappuccino and hot drinks in general, and is equipped with a manometer to check the boiler pressure. The "Cappuccino Automatic" attachment ensures a perfect cappuccino every time. This device on the opening of a valve automatically sucks the milk from its container and brews it warm and perfectly frothed into the cup.

A beauty but skin deep
by:Happy beans (11-27-2014)
Comments:A beauty to see and use makes a serious cup of coffee with a beautiful croma
But after a year of daily use it started leaking at the piston lever and then the piston gaskets are failing Called the vendor and gave me a number to call in Italy for replacement parts . Went on line and found nationally the four rubber O rings for $80.oo a totally overpriced repair item for four rubber rings do the maths it's a beauty but will require maintenance for this big ticket item
Bottom Line:I would not recommend this product.
